eBay is running a free-listing promotion in the U.S. that appears to be targeted at casual sellers. “Make more cash, save more cash” is the tagline, and eBay tells recipients of the invitation, “We’ve made it even easier to make more money on eBay, so you can have extra cash to shop, travel, or do whatever you love. It’s just another reason eBay is the best place to sell online.”
eBay is apparently trying to free the $100 billion of value in items that it says is “trapped in closets and garages” that could be sold on its marketplace. President Devin Wenig said Wednesday that he intends to revitalize consumer selling, calling it a key eBay strength.
The current invitation-only promotion allows sellers to list up to 1,000 auction or fixed-price listings and pay no insertion fees. Sellers must activate the promotion by selecting “Activate offer” in the invitation email or on the promo landing page.
All existing selling limits as well as category and item limits apply. 5-, 7-, 10-, and 30-day listing durations are included in the promotion.
The promotion kicked off on April 22nd and ends on Sunday, April 26, 2015.
All other fees apply, see eBay website for details and restrictions.
